just maybe because their government acted like ours used to and ours started to act like theirs used to . also npr had a bad week executives making statements that show a level of ignorance and arrogance and boasting they didn't need our tax dollars. i think it is time to grant them their wish and turn them loose to raise their own money than asking me to contribute to the irerational rants of their executives. if we had to give an award this week of a most outrageous at the same time of a political figure it would be senator harry reid for the stunning explanation of why congress can't stop spending orgies. >> these programs create jobs . that's the reason we have in northern nevada cowboy poetry festival. had that program not been around the tens was thousands of people who come there ever year would not exist. >> what >> mike: what did he say taxpayers subsidizing the cowboy poetry festival that 10,000 people wouldn't exist? what did the cowboys do around the campfire anyway? in recognition of senator reid's panic over losing the recitation of cowboy poetsry. i created a poem i wi

. the u.s. and allice will manage the bombing campaign a role that president obama is eager to give up. joining me is former deputy secretary of defense. >> good to be here. >> and week into this, how is it going? >> it seems to me we are in a situation for lack of a strategy we end up in long debates about tactics it is a tactical question and the strategic question is are we prepared to live long term in a stale mate in libya. it has to be more than yust tightening the noose through economic sanctions . the real questions that should be addressed is what kind of support are we going to give to the libya opposition starting with the issue of having a presence in benghazi and agreeing on principles for the long term of the country and providing them assistance. >> i want to get into the opposition. a lot of people say we don't know who they are. they could be islamicist and not democrats after all. if we don't know them that well, why should we back them? >> my first response, one reason we don't know who they are is because we made little effort to get in there can work with them and
